Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

The LensWork Podcast

Brooks Jensen, the editor of LensWork magazine, puts out a wonderful podcast, usually several times a week. If you are familiar with the magazine, (and if you aren’t, see my post here) then you know what the LensWork philosophy and mission is. That same philosophy, which is to say the discussion of the creative aspects of photography, carries through to the podcast as well.

Unlike some of the others I have previously reviewed, the LensWork podcasts are fairly short, usually only 3-6 minutes min length. They are quite focused and to the point. Most importantly, they are extraordinarily insightful and though provoking. In addition, Brooks has a great ‘announcer’s voice’ which is a pleasure to listen to. In short, the podcasts are simply a pleasure to hear and offer a lot to think about. If you have not yet had the chance to experience them you really owe it to yourself to check them out here.

Administrative Note: I have been able to make daily entries since I started this blog just over 2 months ago. I have many ideas for upcoming posts, but feel as if I don’t want to dilute the quality of the postings by feeling absolutely compelled to post on a daily basis. Needless to say, it does entail time and energy to prepare them. I would much rather write something of interest and that is well thought out than try to simply ensure that there is a daily blog entry. Though they might not be daily, I do plan for them to be very frequent (perhaps even daily at times). I surely hope that this will not deter folks from checking back in frequently!
